FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Hartig Drug Company, Dubuque, Iowa; August 27, 2013)
Dick Hartig announced today the results of the Fourth Annual Rock ‘n Roll Rewind Benefit for Camp Albrecht Acres in a presentation to their board today, There is no other definition of fun with a purpose that beats the weekend experience of Rock ‘n Roll Rewind IV held at the Mississippi Moon Bar August 2 and 3, 2013.
When you see dentists, engineers, pharmacists, executives, radio personalities, and a great group of folks come together with great musicians for a cause, magic just happens. Everyone smiles. Everyone has a reunion. That’s the true spirit of REWIND. And Albrecht Acres, the camp for people with special needs also likes the music…to the tune of over $13,000!
For the 4th consecutive year, the old hippies and music lovers got their acts together for a common cause and a whole lot of fun. “There were so many great bands, it’s hard for me to describe in a simple sound bite, but the jest of it is simply all about the bands. When you hear that phrase… we’re getting the old band back together, it is truly just that; the bonding, reminiscing, high fives and the banter on stage; I’m amazed at how great Dubuque musicians are, not only as human beings, but as life-long friends,” said Dick Hartig, sponsor. “I just love taking tickets, because I get to see everyone!”
Hartig Drug, American Trust, Conlon Construction and The Diamond Jo stepped up as corporate sponsors for the event which featured thirteen bands over the two day event including The Butterscotch Grove, Gayle Grether, Goldirox, The Dark Side, Blissfield Blues Band, Pentagram, Harry Steve Maule, River City Ramblers, Mississippi, The 5th Column, Ralph Kluseman and Andy Wilberding and others.
“Albrecht Acres has become the beneficiary that united us to get serious about using music to have fun and do something for the camp,” said Dave Hummel, a musician and annual contributor.
Stay tuned…Rewind V remains a possibility. Any old bands out there that need a reunion?
